      Referring to Rule 189 of the Rules of Procedure of the European Parliament;
      Whereas the European Parliament and the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) are united in the shared pursuit of human rights, justice and democracy in Europe and across the world;

      — will endeavour to identify issues which will constitute a basis for joint activities. These will include joint meetings and hearings, invitations for members and rapporteurs of counterpart committees, where appropriate, as well as regular contacts between rapporteurs;
      — will exchange information, agendas and other documents and recognise each other’s achievements in their own documents;
      — achievements and actions of both Assemblies will be referred to and taken into account, when appropriate, in each other’s documents and activities;
      — the European Parliament and the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe will invite each other to be represented at conferences, seminars and other events;

      — high level Secretariat meetings will be held on a regular basis;
      — respective secretariats of the counterpart committees should be instructed to maintain close contacts and co-operation;
